Phasor Measurement Unit Calibration Service Improving Accuracy of Power Grid Measurements

NIST is now providing a service for Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs), to the IEEE Synchrophasor Standard C37.118-2005 performance requirements as a Special Test 56230S.


Thermal Resistance Measurements of Calibration Transfer Specimens 

Thermal resistance measurements are provided by the NIST 1016 mm Guarded-Hot-Plate Laboratory in air at site pressure (100 kPa ± 20 kPa).  Services at ambient pressures outside these limits or with other gases are not provided. These measurements are performed once a year. Services 36110C, 36120C, 36130C and 36140S.

All services have been
updated to reflect our
2008 prices.
